The [Tuesday] Papers

"There isn't much glamour in this kind of work, but someone has to do it," Kristina Strain writes for Inside Philanthropy.

"Since 1890 - that's right, for over 100 years - the VNA Foundation has been dedicated to community health initiatives in and around Chicago. First as a hands-on care group - VNA stands for Visiting Nurse Association, after all - and later, from 1995 forward, as a grantmaker funding groups doing the hands-on health work, VNAF has been giving out funding to the tune of about $2 million per year.

"And the beautiful thing is, they're transparent as glass. They're generous and accessible, and if you're Chicago-based with a health-access angle, you need to know about them."
